  • It is a highlight spot of Aso sightseeing. If the weather is good, I always stop by and feel the great nature of Aso. This time, paragliding was also flying, and it was a wonderful scenery unlike usual. From the parking lot, climb the paved road for about 10 minutes. Because it is a scenery opened 360 degrees, the wind is strong, and it is especially cold in winter, so the cold is firm.

  • Oh, this is a place where you can feel that it is a caldera's cage. It is a magnificent view. Here you can see the view from above further on the paraglider, but I recommend that you fly to Mt. Aso during the eruption by sightseeing in a helicopter sightseeing in a zoo-like place called Cadreed Minion if you want to make this money.
